Don't Worry, Be Happy... SHUT UP!!

I just read this last night. It's really sticking in my head.

"'Just go home, and be happy. Be happy, and let everyone around you be happy. Is that so hard?'

When (he) said it like that, it didn't seem hard. In fact, it seemed to make a lot of sense, but inside, it felt hard. Inside it felt like the hardest thing in the world. To just let go, and not pick everything to death. To just let go and enjoy what you had. To just let go and not make everybody around you miserable with your own internal dialogue. To just let go and be happy. So simple. So difficult. So terrifying."

How quiet it would be if the noisy little bastard inside my head would just. shut. up. So peaceful. So wonderful. So, well, happy.
